Find Good Remote Business Advice
Once you've finished assessing the competion, it's a wise move to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?
Fortunately, somebody who runs a mosaics business outside of your community will be much more likely to talk with you, given that you don't compete with them in their area. Many business owners are happy to give advice to new entrepreneurs. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

Advantages of Buying an Established Mosaics Business
It's no secret that entrepreneurs have a strong impulse to build companies from the ground up.
But from a business and financial perspective, it may make more sense to leverage an existing mosaics business as your vehicle for world domination.

If you don't have much business experience, it's a good idea to look into whether it makes sense to franchise instead of doing everything yourself.
